    Since a lot of users (including myself) are now contemplating buying the refurb MBP for 1300$, I was wondering this.

    Exactly how future-proof is the refurb MBP still? (for snow leopard, etc.)

    Thanks :)

    Because it still uses pretty latest tech in terms of Processor, GPU, Memory, etc.

    I'm sure it'll run the next few (at the very least) releases of OS X, but no computer is ever totally "future-proof". Especially notebooks.

    It certainly will not be obsolete any time soon.

    The differences between it and a new MBP are not that big - when it is obsolete, so will a new one.

    Yes the new MBP has a new case but in terms of technology the are not so different. I'm not saying the new ones aren't going to be an improvement but it will be incremental only - as have most since the Intel transition.
